TN eCampus: For students

resources for students taking and faculty teaching TN eCampus courses

TN eCampus logo  This page is for TN eCampus students who are either taking a course taught by Vol State faculty or are enrolled at Vol State.

On this page you will find information on the Virtual Library and how to get help with library resources. Discover other resources to help you with your TN eCampus course.

Students needing Interlibrary Loan (ILL) should contact their home school. Your home school is the college or university where you are enrolled as a student. A current student ID from your home school allows you to check out books from any TBR or UT college or university. Ask for more information at your library.

TN eCampus Virtual Library

The Course Resources box is located on the main page of each TN eCampus course. Here you will find the Virtual Library link that takes you to a library list on the TN eCampus Virtual Library page.

Use this Virtual Library page to connect to your home library. NOTE: This is a change from previous semesters.

The College name affiliated with the Virtual Library is based on the home college of the professor teaching your course which may be different from your home college.

You select your home college (institution) library from the drop-down menu or use your library link from the "Virtual Library Links List" on the virtual library page. Vol State librarians will help Vol State students with both their Vol State and TN eCampus research.

Since you will be using your home institution library there is no need for a different library login. However, if your professor is using resources in their course that is unique to their college library they will provide you the information needed to access the resource. Vol State professors have a shared username and password that they can provide you to use Thigpen Library resources.
